Overview

Every parent has the right to expect a normal, healthy child. When your precious baby is diagnosed with autism, though, how do you deal?
The Child of Dawn chronicles one mother's journey of acceptance and remarkable bravery in the face of bureaucratic hassle as she tenderly cares and advocates for her son.

These memoirs also tell on how necessary it is to put the parents' own pain aside, to give their son the best opportunities for development and independence. They expect nothing but the child's wellbeing.

It is a personal and informative account of the challenges of raising a child with autism from a mother's perspective. Although it tells a poignant story, it overflows with courage and unconditional love. Its candor eloquently captures the grace of the human spirit through pains and triumphs.

It is a trip to acceptance, without abdicating.

    Beautiful & Heartfelt When The Child of Dawn first came to

    Beautiful & Heartfelt

    When The Child of Dawn first came to my attention I couldn't help but feel an immediate interest in it as a childhood friend of mine just recently found out her daughter was autistic. It's something that I admit to knowing very little about, so when I got the chance to read it the book ended up being a very compelling, beautiful and heartfelt read that captured my attention from the very beginning. The story of Noah and his family is one that isn't always happy or without it struggles, but it is a story of love, of hope and of the will to keep carrying on when life throws its hardships at you. 

    The book is well-written with a wonderful tone that makes you feel as if you're right there with them as Noah is brought into the world with hopes and dreams, and then having to redefine those expectations into something that is more in line with the reality of having a child with autism. It's an honest and heartfelt look inside the secret struggles, triumphs, tribulations and hope for the future that made me sad, hopeful, happy and tearful in equal turn. 

    At heart this is a story of love and family that really captures the heart in a beautiful way.

    The Child of Dawn  by Belangela G. Tarazona 
    A beautifully written short story of Noah, a remarkable boy with Autism. It is heart warming and informative, showing the struggles and t
    triumphs one family goes through on a daily basis with their son. At times I wanted to cry, others I cheer Noah on. A must read for those
    wanting to know more about Autism (or parents of children with this disorder.)I loved: The Child of Dawn.
